Like codeex said: “This is a general ThemeForest forum. For product-specific support, please contact the author of that theme through their profile page. You can find the profile page by clicking the author avatar on the product page.”
ToivoMedia saidThis is true, but for what is in discussion here they should represent well any eventual change. By the way, I did not release anything in the past 90 days and did not notice any drop in my sales last week.
OrangeIdea saidTop Selling WordPress Themes are hardly representative of the entire Market.
There are no any drop in sales, as we can see from “Last Week’s Top Selling WordPress Themes & Templates”
This is a general forum. You should contact the theme author about that matter
No, that is not a requirement
jonathan01 saidMakes sense what you are saying, but allowing people to set their own prices will only make it worse.
Although I agree that allowing people to set their own prices is a scary thing, you have to surely see that allowing the massive 100 demo / website products up for sale is the exact same as price dumping unfortunately.
It’s just a way of getting around selling a WP theme for $4 when you include 10 (or more) complete sites for a little over $40 – therefore Envato handling the pricing does not secure you from price dumping – it’s basically the exact same sanctioned by the powers that be and they have already stated clearly they will not stop this happening.
In fact it’s actually perfect for Envato as they can allow this and still earn a good profit rather than allowing $4 items and having to sell multiple times – it’s the perfect plan. Again everything is set up for Envato’s benefit, not authors.Jonathan
No, widget ready areas don’t need to be declared in a plugin.
@ VIBEdigital: I think the point of this thread is really not criticizing you. You have your own opinion about themes, plugins and WordPress in general. You are obviously free to share your opinion in whatever way you want.
The issue here seems to be Envato sharing this post on their blog which, I have to agree, is not very elegant.
